SkySkopes launches new subsidiary

MINOT, N.D.- A drone technology company with roots in North Dakota is working to make it easier to collect data in the Bakken.

SkySkopes announced a one-stop shop for this very purpose Wednesday.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, or drones, are commonly used for inspections to make sure that infrastructure is up to compliance.

Engineers help the company interpret the information gathered by the drones.

"This new entity is a way to bridge the gap between two of North Dakota's most important economies: oil and aviation. I look forward to seeing the new organization flourish across the United States," said Matt Dunlevy, SkySkopes President and CEO.

SkySkopes has headquarters in Minot, WIlliston and Forth Worth, Texas.
